    MFC Standalone App

    I have got a really simple MFC application, it is only a few lines of code to manipulate a couple of text files, I want it to work on any computer, could someone tell me how to make it a standalone program, at the moment if I try use it on a computer that I dint write it on, it has an error message about missing .dll's, I could copy the .dll's across but I would like it to work without having to do that.

    It is a dialog based MFC app.

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, copying the DLLs is how people usually do it... I'm not even sure if you can do it without them. My advice is if you really want a standalone app than code it in the windows api .

    Make sure your MFC project is statically-linked with the MFC libs.
